Hello! We are the new owners of two female pigs around 6 wks old - Petunia and Marabel. We are starting to wonder if Marabel is really a dude. Watching her walk around, she appears to be developing "butt cheeks"; Petunia does not have this although she seems to be slower to gaining weight and confidence compared to Marabel. We are having trouble based on inspecting the genitals. I have attached a picture. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!!!

Looks like a girl. My boys are easy to spot now I'm a little more used to it and that has a definite "y" or "v" shape.

Here are two sites that may help: www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm, and http://www.pet-informed-veterinary-advice-online.com/sexing-guinea-pigs.html.

The acid test of whether it's a male or female is if you can get the penis to extrude.

Look at post #2 (https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=2) in this thread. It will be easier to tell in a week or so what sex it is. You've got 21 days before you have to separate a male from the females.
